"I Extra Life because I am proud to be a part of a community of people who genuinely want to help others" #WhyIExtraLife




I joined Extra Life purely as a way to help sick kids.


Kids have little to no control over their life’s circumstances, and yet, they tend to weather storms better than most adults. Children are the future, and showing compassion to them in their times of dire need will teach them to always be compassionate.


Several years later I had a child born with autism. While this isn't something that is directly relevant to the hospital I raise money for, I know others out there raise money for Autism Awareness. I continue to raise funds for Extra Life as a growing streamer, where I dedicate 100% of my income from the stream to Extra Life until my goal is filled. Once the goal is filled I switch to a modified model to ensure I have funds to invest back into the stream, and invest into further income-generating opportunities to, in turn, give more money to charitable causes.


I Extra Life because I am proud to be a part of a community of people who genuinely want to help others, and have dedicated large quantities of time and funds to doing so.
